Recommend an obscure/indie/underrated movie!

Alright, bitches. A lot of times, we think A-list actors only star in cheesy shit.

That's not true. I looked up a few IMDB pages, and low-key indie films that go under the radar.

Here are some (add some of your own favorites):

Fireflies in the Garden
Paper Man
Across the Hall
The Boat that Rocked
Entre Les Murs
2:37
Unmistaken Child
Grosse Point Blank

Lol The Boat That Rocked was distributed by universal, there's no way that can be classed as obscure, indie or even underrated.

i can't remember the title, but there's a film about time travel in an office space kinda environment. it's meant to be a mindfuck, and it definitely had very little funding/studio backing.

That sounds dope as hell. id like to know the name.
Jun 30, 2010 @ 13:21
same - name. now.
Jun 30, 2010 @ 13:39
lmao I was wrong about the setting -- i'm still not sure what the setting is -- but the title is PRIMER. Came out in 06. Probably best not to look it up on wikipedia, lest you be spoiled. budget was $7000.

Looks really cool, wish i had netflix.

Foriegn movies tend to be underrated. there are a lot of good ones in the Foreign movie thread. http://hypebeast.com/forum/showthread.php?t=133040

French cinema? Check out Breathless

I just read an Inception review on AICN, and they compared it to Primer. Now I'm gonna see it, because I'm that shallow towards indie films.

ETA: icefilms might be even better than ninja. primer is on there.

no doubt confusing, but the story is very well done imo smokeyface

definitely. Rockwell gives one of the finest performances i have seen and Kevin Spacey is just the icing. the plot is what really shines though.
